    The link is out of date, but I found an explanation elsewhere on the web.

    Whether the context menu includes "Include in Library" is determined by a Registry entry. Several websites offer scripts...

    I won't rule out a configuration option -- some have truly bizarre effects -- but I should note that "my computer" is a dozen or so different computers that I've used at home and work over time, and...

    Explanation for weird behavior of F4 key?

    This has bugged me for years, and I'd like to understand it, even if there's no way to change it.

    The F4 key, "Repeat last action," is very useful for repetitive operations. Unfortunately there's...

    Either type of change is possible, but style definition changes are much more common. A solution that only addresses style changes would be less than ideal, but far better than no solution at all.
  7. Incorporating new template changes into existing documents

    I know this is a wrong-end-of-the-funnel operation; it's simply not the way Word is designed to be used. Unfortunately it's what we need.

    We've got a large and growing number of Word documents...
  8. Display color balance: What is this X of which you speak?

    I tried to use Windows 7's "Calibrate Color" procedure (in the control panel's Display applet) to adjust my display's settings. The brightness step baffled me.

    The step showed a photograph of a...

    >If you don't use Send to Bluetooth, try disabling that.

    That fixed it. Thank you.

    Now that I think about it, "Send to Bluetooth" is a pretty bizarre thing to do, anyway.

    I should add that...
  11. Don't want to save changes to document template

    Every time I save a certain document with Word 2010, it opens a dialog which asks "Do you want to save changes to the document template?"

    Irfanview is my preferred tool for straightforward image capture, but it doesn't support most of the image manipulations I listed.

    Picasa sounds like another useful tool, although past experiences...

    I miswrote. It was HKEY_CURRENT_USER that I copied the keys from (and to). So that's not the problem.

    At this point is looks like Paint.net is likely to be the solution for me.

    I've tried GIMP;...

    Hmm, interesting. I tried copying the program file directory from my old machine to my new one, and I can run it. Sort of. Every time I start it, it displays the error message "Failed to update the...

    I need an image processing program to clean up scanned images, mainly of printed matter. I'm looking for the following properties/capabilities:


    Reasonable price (or free)
